Jerry Seinfeld

Love it or shove it, Jerry Seinfeld is one of the most important comedians of my lifetime (I'm 35). Growing up, 'Seinfeld' was one of my favorite shows and I saw every episode from all 9 seasons the evenings they premiered. Even now, there's an hour of 'Seinfeld' on beginning at 7:00pm every night and if I'm home I am watching that shit. Nowadays, it's easy (and sort of fashionable) to disregard Seinfeld, his comedy, and his TV show as being dated, too white-centric, and corny. Fuck that noise though. I love it. One of my many maxims is that people who try to make you feel like shit about the comedy you like and what makes you laugh are a waste of your time. Anyone dogmatic about what is and isn't funny is a douche bag. A friendless, tedious, insufferable, miserable wretch of a douche bag. When something makes you laugh, it's a completely unconscious reaction and you have absolutely no control over it. So own it.

When BV announced that Jerry Seinfeld will be doing a stand-up show in each of the 5 boroughs in late October and early November, I'm not going to lie; I was f-ing pumped (even though tix are out of your pal Klaus' price range)! Comedy legend Colin Quinn will be opening all these shows which actually makes a lot of sense. For one thing, Quinn is a native New Yorker (born in Brooklyn) and has been no stranger to goggle boxes and movie screens all over America since 1987. More importantly though, Jerry Seinfeld directed Colin's superb one-man show Long Story Short. HEADS UP, though. Turns out, presales, and in some cases on-sales, begin VERY SOON. Like, TODAY!

Presales and on-sales actually vary from borough to borough, here's the rundown:

His October 11 show at the Concert Hall at the Lehman Center for the Arts in the Bronx go on sale today at 10am.

His show on October 4 show at the Beacon Theater goes on presale today (password THURSDAY) at 11AM. General on-sale is Monday, July 30 at 10AM.

His November 8 show at the Walt Whitman Theatre at the Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts in Brooklyn are on presale now (password: BCJS12).

His October 18 show at The Colden Auditorium at the Kupferberg Center for the Arts in Queens go on sale Monday, July 30 at 10AM.

His November 1 show at the St. George Theater on Staten Island go on sale Monday July 30th.

Since when is Staten Island a borough? I thought Harlem was the 5th borough.

"I thought Harlem was the 5th borough"

Jesus I hope you're kidding. But if not A) Harlem is in Manhattan and B) KILL YOURSELF AND LEAVE OUR CITY

unchill New York bro above me. It's okay, man. Not everyone knows the boroughs.

Posted by the REAL rkelly | July 26, 2012 10:34 AM

Technically, Queens and even Brooklyn are part of Long Island. Really, it's true. Ahahahahahaha!!!

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2012 10:42 AM

Technically speaking, this is the lamest thread ever on BV. You should all be ashamed.

Posted by BV | July 26, 2012 10:44 AM

"Technically, Queens and even Brooklyn are part of Long Island"

Yes, they are on the same land mass. But thanks to the miracle of modern land designation, they are part of NYC! Wow!

And did you know Brooklyn was it's own city for a while, separate from NYC? Wow!

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2012 10:55 AM

Yeah Queens and Brooklyn are both part of Long Island people. Get a map. Not a big deal.


Serenity now.

pretty sure there were no tix for Beacon available...

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2012 11:04 AM

The presale code for Beacon was THURSDAY so that when people get all emotional about not getting tickets they'll feel right at home.

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2012 11:06 AM

Just pulled 4.

Wow! And Brooklyn even had it's own baseball team once. Wow!

Any confirmation that Seinfeld will be at The Bell House? Some googling brings up a comedy show there that says they have a "secret guest" next week.

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2012 11:26 AM

I heard the secret guest is going to be iPods.

1. i wish seinfeld would take a louis ck like stance to prevent scalping

2. i havent seen a jamming like that from scalpers in some time. they froze it up good while they took their choice.

11:26 Are you talking about this show?

http://aspecialthing.com/forum/f36/tell-your-friends-w-janeane-garofalo-wyatt-cenac-todd-barry-starlight-girls-24183/

The last time I went to that show the secret guest was Lewis Black, so it's possible?

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2012 11:45 AM

I plan on walking up to the Beacon at 7:45. I'll get a ticket from some dude for $15. You guys are all such losers.

Colin Quinn hit on me once outside a comedy club in New Brunswick, NJ, after he "performed". He was so drunk he could hardly stand, and steadied himself by grabbing my bicep HARD, which left some nice red marks.

TLDR: DO NOT WANT.

"Any confirmation that Seinfeld will be at The Bell House? Some googling brings up a comedy show there that says they have a "secret guest" next week."

Ugh, god even as a joke this is so terrible. It's like you want EVERYTHING to be trendy and hip.

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2012 12:16 PM

Seinfeld at The Bell House? PASS. Let me know if they have Kramer shouting the n-word over and over.

What's the deal with hummus? I mean, who are these people?

11:19 - the only time that joke has ever been funny. Way to go.

One of my "maxims"...Listen to this guy...

Posted by Larry | July 26, 2012 1:16 PM

If he had Michael Richards opening and he performed the laugh factory set word for word followed by the letterman apology I would be happy to pay $1,000+ for my ticket.

This is a total cash cow if you thought he'd do anything about scalping with prices like that you better go back to Idaho.

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2012 1:58 PM

Idaho?

You da ho!

I don't normally like stand up comedy in a large theater setting but seeing Seinfeld would be a good time that I wouldn't mind seeing.

Posted by Steve | July 26, 2012 4:51 PM

I mean, what's the deal with trendies? I mean they say they're not faggots, but yet, they continue to act like them in every way, shape, and form! I mean, what's the deal!?

The funniest Seinfeld ever was, was when he stayed in Oz.

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2012 5:09 PM

12:13, good luck with that. You're better off trying in one of the outer boroughs. Beacon will be 4xFACE.

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2012 5:13 PM

I wouldn't be surprised if he pops up at Comedy Cellar pretty soon.

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2012 5:14 PM

Hey, just curious, but has anyone else noticed that the '90s are totally back?

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2012 6:49 PM

Seinfeld went to Queens College, so it would be somewhat of a homecoming. He gave the commencement speech in '96.

" One of my many maxims is that people who try to make you feel like shit about the comedy you like"

I appreciate this statement... Since my primary choice of comedy comes from hummus based statements here on the BV comment boards.

did anyone get tix? what a joke.

Very interesting article, I look forward to more research coming out regarding the remaining two thirds

I always find that Seinfeld is on television and I can never get tired of it. It's humor is just brilliant. I would enjoy even getting to see Seinfeld himself live because he's just such a great comedian.
